Still proportionately off.
Everyone knows that worms are larger than bears, because worms are herbivores and bears are omni/carnivores. Same reason that horses are bigger than mountain lions, and that brachiosaurs are larger than T-Rexs, etc.

Questions to ponder:

1. If poison expires, is it more poisonous or is it no longer poisonous?

2. Which letter is silent in the word "Scent," the S or the C?

3. Do twins ever realise that one of them is unplanned?

4. Why is the letter W, in English, called double U? Shouldn't it be called double V?

5. Maybe oxygen is slowly killing you and It just takes 75-100 years to fully work.

6. Every time you clean something, you just make something else dirty.

7. The word "swims" upside-down is still "swims".

8. 100 years ago everyone owned a horse and only the rich had cars. Today everyone has cars and only the rich own horses.

I have an idea for an invention:
A golf ball with GPS that rolls into the hole.
Just don't put it in your back pocket.

We visited our newly married daughter, who was preparing her first Thanksgiving dinner. I noticed the turkey thawing in the kitchen sink with a dish drainer inverted over the bird. I asked why a drainer covered the turkey.

Our daughter turned to my wife and said, “Mom, you always did it that way.”

“Yes,” my wife replied, “but you don’t have a cat!”

I went to see the doctor about my aching shoulder problem. The doctor said, "Okay, it is a bit inflamed. What I want you to do is put a bag of frozen peas on it, on and off for a week."

"The peas will work?" I asked.

The doctor replies, "Yes, just give peas a chance."

(Sorry, John.) :lol:

I find this to be very funny. But you have to admit, the turkey was successfully thawed, so ... problem solved!

Went to the library looking for a book on Pavlov's dog and Schrodinger's cat. The librarian looked puzzled and said "It rings a bell, but I'm not sure where it's at"
